Division of Aerospace Medicine

Master's Degree Curriculum

Beginning in fall semester 2014, the Master of Science in Aerospace Medicine curriculum was significantly improved. New courses were developed that provide a greater exposure to space medicine and operational aerospace medical support. Additionally, an enhanced concentration on aerospace medicine research was incorporated, and a two-year program of study was developed for interested students.
